The Rise and Rise of Solar

Latest Government figures estimate that UK Solar Installers will have delivered one million rooftops by 2015 and recently reached the 500,000 mark.

This only measures those signed up to the feed in Tariff and so the numbers may be larger and it also doesn’t take into account Commercial Solar Installations either which has been on the increase over the last couple of years.

This is not only great for the industry and Government, who look set to reach their targets, but its also great for those property owners that are taking advantage of earning money from the energy they produce as well as enjoying free or greatly reduced energy bills.

But its not just a financial decision, more and more of us are becoming concerned about our finite resources running out and the impact our energy use has on the environment. It feels very much like a win win situation with property owners and the environment both better off!

Just because you have Solar panels installed however doesn’t mean you can leave all your lights on or forget to unplug appliances, it is still important to try and reduce overall energy consumption if you want to really make the most of the incentives that are out there.

The growth of solar was inevitable really and the Government has really backed the idea from the start by encouraging homeowners to make the switch, but there are other forms of renewable energy too that are building momentum.

At Carmichael Browns we are proud of the fact that we were there at the start before everyone jumped on the Solar band wagon and we really do help you “turn the sun into pounds”
